The new “Saudi Vision 2030” aims at reducing the big oil producer’s reliance on oil. Yes, you heard that right – read this.
Think you may want to go to solar? Read about Tesla’s latest innovation.
New statistics from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) released show that solar has become a cheaper form of electricity production than wind power, and is also out-competing coal and natural gas for the first time. It appears that global energy markets are set to undergo a major transformation as the world begins to finally shift to energy that is both affordable and renewable.
The world has also seen solar energy continue to gain momentum as just last month, the Tesla company announced that they will begin selling solar roof panels in 2017 that will likely be more cost effective than a “regular roof.” Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk said of the announcement: “It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof will actually cost less than a normal roof before you even take in the value of electricity into account.”
You may be able to use solar – even if you don’t own your home – with this new “plug-and-play” solar technology.
If India can develop a 100% solar-powered airport, what is stopping the USA or any other country for that matter from doing this?!
Been thinking of going solar? Clearly most people who have switched are pretty happy about it.
Solar energy may really expand in 2016. This article shares why, and also tells you a couple key solar companies to keep an eye on.
Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, has the 44-year-old CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, once again championed the incredible potential of renewable energy
Want an ideal emergency home power source? The portable solar charger is described as an “off-grid home solar system in a box,” and it could be a much safer option for home backup power than a gas generator.
The author shares how shares how Tesla’s gigafactory will produce as much renewable energy as it uses. This can be emulated by others to reduce the footprint on the environment.
The Indian government is encouraging other airports in the nation to do the same, as a project like this comes with many benefits.
Project Sunroof takes a similar approach to what other solar installers have been doing by using aerial imagery combined with clever software to give a pretty good estimate of how much solar radiation is falling on a particular roof, how big a solar array you would need to generate as close to possible to 100% of your needs, and how much clean power would be produced on an average year based on multiple factors, which then feeds into financial calculations based on local electricity rates.
There are a lot of advantages to a tiny house being built on stilts like this: the air up there is cooler and there are fewer crawly things; It frees the ground plane for storage of cars and provides shade; it’s useful in floods. When you put a 400 square foot box on a 40 square foot stick, you have to design the foundation really well to keep it from falling over, particularly in the wind. It has to go deeper and have a lot more material. It also takes a lot more structure to cantilever the box out over the stick than a conventional building would need.
